It Takes a Village…’ Project
‘It Takes a Village…’ is an exciting 7 week project, which will take place at Daubeney Primary School (E5) with the first session on Wednesday 5th June @ 5-7pm and all subsequent sessions every Wednesday at 5-7pm until the final session on 17.7.19. The name, ‘It Takes a Village…’, is from the ancient African saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’.
The project is part of our ‘Improving Outcomes for Young Black Men’ (YBM) action plan for 2018-2019, which is in collaboration with the borough’s 2015-2025 initiative and is one of our school priorities for this year and the years ahead. At Harrington Hill, our senior leadership team have had full training on Cultural Competency, which is currently being disseminated to all members of staff in school. Kirstie Barrett is on the Hackney School Steering Group for Head Teachers and I, in my upcoming role as Deputy Head Teacher, will be leading on this work within Harrington Hill.
The project has four desired outcomes:
1) Improved parental engagement with their child’s learning.
2) Improved parental engagement with school
3) Improved parental and child/young person engagement with local organisations
4) Improved inter-organisational networking
Here is an outline of the 7 sessions:

At Harrington Hill, we see parents as community partners and we value the contribution they make as the children’s first and most enduring educators.
We invite you to attend the 7 sessions and join us in this exciting project and journey to tackle disproportionality in Hackney schools.
We hope to see you there!
